“I was pretty happy with the effort and the way that our players got things done today,” said Syracuse head coach Gary Gait. “It was a good all-around effort for the first game and I can’t wait for the next one.”

It didn’t take long for Syracuse’s high-powered offense to get going as sophomore Meaghan Tyrrell scored on an assist from sophomore Sam Swart less than a minute into the game. Tyrrell’s goal was the first of four straight for the Orange before Canisius found the back of the net at the 25:40 mark for its first goal.
